An Honest Weekend

Last weekend Jody and Vicky came over for fittings, we had a shoot to do the next day. Jody came over and I bleached the inside layers of her hair and dyed them blue/purple. We went over to their new house and watched My So-Called Life because they have American Netflix, which is amazing.

On Saturday we headed downtown to an outdoor show on possibly the last day of real summer. It was beautiful and warm out and the bands were really good. Plus I had a pizza sub from Subway, it was yummy! I had to leave the show early to get to work on time though, which was sad, I missed jelly boyz.

Sunday was the day of the shoot, I'm not going to say much about it, we're just waiting for the rest of the film to be developed and then I'll be putting up all the photos on girl-guts. But I'll leave you with these two previews which I'm sure you've already seen on tumblr.

Greetings From California

Yesterday afternoon I came home to a big package sitting on my bed, I was very excited, it felt like christmas morning. I quickly tore off the envelope to find a box wrapped in heart-covered paper, I took that off to find a red box with butterflies on it. Inside the box I found this! Months ago I won a giveaway put on by Alejandra, the stuff up for grab was her immense sticker collection. She warned me it was a big one, and damn was she right! I've never seen such a big sticker collection, and now it's all mine! I'm so happy! She also included a bunch of other stuff, garbage pail kids paraphernalia, devo pins (I was listening to them as I was opening this parcel, Alejandra how did you know?!), a cute pen, pokemon temporary tattoos, cross berets, lots of GLITTER, gum, hello kitty mints, and a ton of other stuff!

Be Kind To My Mistakes

I tried to wake up early on Saturday morning so I'd actually have time to do stuff. On Friday when Carmelle and I were on Commercial, we went into Barefoot Contessa, one of my favourite clothing stores in Vancouver, and spoke to the girls that work there about getting a job there. It's an adorable boutique that specializes in all things girly and beautiful, the owner shows off her various collections between the store's two locations, including Victorian doll houses and tea cups. Apparently they're hiring and are desperate for employees. I've applied there in the past, but that was before I had any retail experience. I was going to go there before work today and drop off my resume, but the night before I was up till 5 AM watching Quantum Leap on Netflix and didn't wake up till about 1:30.

This outfit was planned to make an impression at Barefoot Contessa, but I suppose I'll just have to save it for another opportunity. However I still wore this to work. There's a dress-code at my work, but it's not enforced.
